Monday Meditation: A Blessing for the Upcoming Holiday

For Celebration

Now is the time to free the heart,
Let all intentions and worries stop,
Free the joy inside the self,
Awaken to the wonder of your life.

Open your eyes and see the friends,
Whose hearts recognize your face as kin,
Those whose kindness watchful and near,
Encourages you to live everything here.

See the gifts the years have given,
Things your effort could never earn,
The health to enjoy who you want to be
And the mind to mirror mystery.

– John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us

Daily Lectio Divina: John O’Donohue

Episode 600

In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re concluding our series on Inner Journey using a selection from “For the Traveler” by Irish poet John O’Donohue.

May you travel in an awakened way,
Gathered wisely into your inner ground;
That you may not waste the invitations
Which wait along the way to transform you.
